Counting On: Family Followers Have Criticized Ben Seewald’s Lack Of Employment

Counting On: Family Followers Have Criticized Ben Seewald’s Lack Of Employment

Jessa Duggar has been involved, during the quarantine, in the creation of content for YouTube. However, she took some time to congratulate her husband, Ben Seewald, on her birthday on Instagram. The long post went into all the attributes Jessa Duggar loves about her man, but family critics have noticed something strange.

Jessa Duggar talked about Ben Seewald’s education and employment in the post, leading some critics to believe she had read all the comments, both positive and negative, about her famous family.

Counting On: Family Followers Have Criticized Ben Seewald’s Lack Of Employment

When Ben Seewald started courting Jessa Duggar, he was employed. When things got serious, however, he had already quit his job to get closer to his bride-to-be. Since then, it doesn’t look like he’s had a legitimate job. Instead of looking for work at one of the couple’s many businesses in northwest Arkansas, Ben Seewald chose to work with Jim Bob Duggar.

The family’s followers have been very critical of Ben’s lack of work. Simply put, tutoring the younger Duggar is not suitable for family critics. There may be a reason why Ben Seewald hasn’t decided to keep a job; he may not be allowed to. Derick Dillard, who married Jill Duggar in 2014, recently suggested that Jim Bob deliberately blocks family men from seeking work from outside sources. Jim Bob would reportedly prefer to keep them on the Duggar payroll to make sure he maintains control.

Counting On: Jessa Was Sure To Clear Up Confusion About Ben Seewald’s Education

If it looks like Ben was in school his whole marriage to Jessa Duggar, it’s because he was. When he applied, Ben Seewald was in the middle of a political science degree. He completed that program in 2015. The following year it was revealed that Ben Seewald was working on getting a second degree, but apparently he dropped out of his political science major in favor of a ministerial program.

According to Jessa’s birthday post, he completed that degree. However, no photo of the degree was published, nor was his achievement recognized. The lack of photographic evidence led some familiar critics to believe that he did not complete any accredited program.

Regardless of what the truth is about Ben’s work and education, it seems obvious that Jessa Duggar is sending a clear message to her followers with her long Instagram post. She seems to be on the Internet reading what’s written about herself and her husband.
